Smartshift Robotics Tool Changers functions as a pure mechanical system. There is no software needed to run the Tool Change regardless of your choice running mechanical, pneumatic or electrical solutions. Smartshift functions as both Manual and Automatic.
For applications where tool changing is a necessary for changing applications, the automatic tool changer is a good option. This clutch enables mechanical, pneumatic and optionally also electric connection. It includes tool pockets with the possibility to exchange tools seamlessly and work on multiple tasks without stopping.
The automatic pneumatic clutch is the most popular SMARTSHIFT set. The clutch provides automatic mechanical and pneumatic connection. With the automatic pneumatic clutch, it is easy to change tools autonomous and you have the option to upgrade to electrical connection. To upgrade for an electric solution, you have to purchase SMARTSHIFT cable electric connector M8. The automatic pneumatic clutch consists of one robot master, two tool holders and two tool pockets.

Easy to connect and no programming skills required
Perform high speed tasks with accurate precision
Light weight components that maximise the use of robots
Screw and nut driving, inserting, mounting, and positioning and produce repeatable accurate assembly processes with high precision and high speed is one of SMARTSHIFT key features. With our reliable tool changer clutch you improve product quality and production efficiency.
PALLETISING / PACKING
Sorting, packaging, labelling, and palletising you need a quick tool changer clutch, which assists different tools to pick up a wide range of materials. Quickly and easily, you can redeploy the tool changer across different operations or invest in the automatic tool changer clutch and switch tools without redeploy and hereby making warehousing and supply chain operations faster and more efficient.
CNC, injection moulding, cutting, metal casting, press and processes can be done easily with tool changer clutch that consistently and repeatedly follow exact processes without risk of errors. Quickly and easily, you can redeploy tools to other processes or by using the tool pockets to operate and switch between tasks without redeploy tools.
Painting, polishing, sanding, drilling, and milling and other tasks is ideal with a tool changer as it operates with consistently flow and precisely placement. You can easily operate and switch from polishing to painting with the tool pockets. With small batches we can provide you with a robot base plate, which makes it easy to change workstations without reprogramming the robot
Testing, inspection, and measuring can be difficult for workers to do repeatedly. With tool changer clutch, you can continually maintain high quality inspection and testing by high precision and consistency. The repeatability is +/- 0,05 mm (50 micron) and giving the stability to automate almost any task.
Laser, ultrasonic, soldering and spot welding can be improved by our tool changer that secures high quality and precision. To reduce production downtime, you can add our tool pocket, so the robot can operate and switch between tools and tasks autonomously in the production line. Or move the robot to other workstations, where you need application support.
